Yes, March Madness is finally upon us!
This is arguable one of my favorite times of the year. For those of you who don’t know, March Madness is a term coined for college basketball.
During March Madness teams play in the conference tournament along with the National Tournament.
The reason I love this time of year is because basketball is one of my favorite sports. I played basketball from age four to my senior year of high school. During that time I played AAU basketball for two years which entailed traveling the Midwest for two years with nine of my best friends.
Moving on to the actual basketball aspect, March Madness is awesome because any team can win on any given night. Every year there are always upsets that shock the nation. It’s a cool feeling watching an underdog beat a perennial powerhouse.
This year I believe the tournament will be wide open for anyone to win. The bracket will be released tonight on CBS at 6 E.T. I’m very excited to see this years bracket because my favorite team Iowa will definitely be in the big dance. I believe Iowa has the capability to go as far as the Final Four this year. At one point they were ranked inside the top ten.
March Madness is also a chance to turn a profit for many people. Throughout the nation many people will be holding bracket challenges that can award hundreds of dollars to the winners. According to quickenloans.com Warren Buffet a multi billionaire is offering one billion dollars to anyone who can pick a perfect bracket this year.
